5 stars WOW!!! I`m in deep shock... It was a long time when I heard a better piece of music then this. I was convinced that the album of 2005 would be for me FRACNES THE MUTE by MARS VOLTA but everything changed after hearing HINTERLAND.

The Album contains only four compositions or rather three because SERENADE FOR 1652 it`s hard to consider as a song due to its length (only 41 secounds).I don`t know if it`s good that it standes for seperate song but I really don`t mind. This piece of music may be treated as introduction or overture to masterpiece called HINTERLAND... The title song is maybe the best song on the album but i`m not quite convinced. Here Wobbel`s music is shown at its peak. We have here utterly everything- ELM, YES, Gentle Giant, King Crimson... This climates are the most exposed here. If you like this bands you shouldn`t hesitate to buy this album. It is not only because it reminds of this great bands and simultaneously isn`t ther copies but also it has its own soul that you may really love (as I do). Oh this ala Emerson`s kayboards, Crimson`s melotron and flute... Pure beauty. Secound track (RUBATO INDUSTRY) is the simplest song on the album (if we can even call it in that way). I don`t know if it isn`t favourite of mine... It simply X my heart and as a result I need a handkerchief. oh this vocal... It is so dramatic, so magnificent It is very hard to write about moments in music that you feel it will be in you through the rest of your life. CLAIR OBSCUR starts with very beautiful piano anconpanyed (sorry about the word)by flute. I think it is the most complex composition on the album with a lot of time sygnatures changes. This composition doesn`t yield to the others. It is very interesting and very pleasant.

I`m sure that if it was issued in 70` HINTERLAND may be considered as a masterpiece the same range as CLOSE TO THE EDGE, PAWN HEARTS, GODBLUFF, STILL LIFE, BRAIN SALAD SURGERY, IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING OR RELAYER. For me Wobbler`s first album is the best debiut I have ever heard, mayby even better then ITCOTCC... I can`t wait `till they release new album and hope to see they playing live...
